Interest in ‘Getting Drafted’ Spikes Up To 7,954%

Leading military website saw tremendous spikes of interest immediately following America's attack on Syria. However, the specific cause of the interests may surprise you.

The past two days following President Trump’s tomahawk missile attacks on Syria, we naturally saw a jump in USMilitary.com’s traffic. Clearly, I’m thinking that the interest in our national security and political world view is all-important and naturally caused our traffic increase. Although true, I did note that our top two pages that got the most hits the last two days were totally, well partially, unrelated to the Syria attacks. Can you guess what they are?

The top two read pages on USMilitary.com immediately following the attacks were “Getting Drafted into the Military” and “Can I get drafted.”

The percentage increase in traffic was a whopping 6,425% and 7,954% respectfully!

Needless to say, the minds of the youth, and moms and dads too, are imminently focused on ‘getting drafted’ war prospects.

    I find that rather humorous. I served 30 years in the U.S. Navy including two tours in Viet Nam as well as “Operation Desert Storm”. I have been all over the world including a “Suez Safari” during a cruise that went around the world. I was stationed for 3+ years on top of a mountain in the Philippines which was surrounded by jungle. I enjoyed my career but was happy to retire when I did. Do you suppose some young people are concerned about conscription?

    Jimmy, first thank you for your service. As a veteran, I mean that sincerely. And you’re absolutely right on. Serving and protecting your country is not an obligation but an honor. Larry
